The UK’s largest shooting organisation, the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC), has secured sponsorship from the UK’s leading cartridge manufacturer Eley Hawk Ltd for the BASC .410 world championships.
Eley Hawk Ltd will be the official sponsor for the championships, which will be held at the Mid Wales Shooting Centre on 24th September 2011.
The company will provide 3,000 cartridges as prizes every year for the next three years.
Meurig Rees, of BASC Wales and organiser of the event, said: “BASC is delighted to announce this new sponsorship deal. We are grateful to Eley Hawk Ltd for supplying these cartridges and supporting the BASC .410 world championships. Eley Hawk has over 180 years of cartridge manufacturing expertise and a well deserved reputation as a quality cartridge manufacturer.”
David Scott, Eley Hawk’s UK commercial manager, said: “We are pleased to have agreed a sponsorship arrangement and be working closely with BASC on this event over the next three years and hopefully well beyond. Held at the well known Mid Wales shooting ground with its excellent facilities, we are sure it will be a very enjoyable and well supported event which will grow in popularity over the coming years”.
